I participate on building simulations of the universe as far as I understand.
I develop interactive beings and their environment; similar to the living animals that has the basic input/output functionality to paricipate relational processes of the mass.
I program abstract structures and outcomes in order to build the beast.

The beast that has the consuming and interacting cells. On very basic I name these cells variables then more advanced ones files or objects.
The more advanced a cell gets the more clear its role.
Like an heart take care of blood circulation in a whole, my std object has the handler stdout that stream out the messages while having the stdin on the basic to consume the incoming.
